    ok so when is obama going to arrive? he needs to address the matter himself, since he has “so much love for his adopted city.” forget the olympics, he needs to bring that city, and the entire country, in order from all the crime and poverty we have endured for too long.

    u know what i find interesting…if this was john mccain as prez….i bet most folks wouldn’t be waiting on the white house to say somthing. I don’t care that its his adopted state, the people elected their officials. They should be trying to fixing the violence in their state. Obama makes a statement…so what now. Chicago’s gov need to take the steps to fix their state. Obama has a million things on his hands. Even though i dont’ like the olympics thing…..thats why we have elected officials.

    He is the President of the United States, Not President of Chicago.

    Eric Holder is the most appropriate person to send.

    And though this crime is HORRENDOUS, Sadly there have been more horrendous things to happen in Chicago just last year, and bound to happen again (I seem to recall a brutal burning of a 4 year old toddler, as a gang retaliation; as well as the playground killing of a College-bound high schooler). If President Obama visited Chicago everytime a horrible crime happened in Chicago, He’d never be in DC.

    Chicago just lost the olympics so President Obama should have been in Chicago addressing this issue not halfway around the world begging for the olympics. The president has been avoiding the controversial black topics and calling kanye west a jackass just to impress the white press core was wrong. Kanye performed for Obama after he won and he wasnt a jackass to his face he wanted to help get younger votes. I dont like two faced people like that who use people. I still havent heard him or the white house apologize to Kanye. Kanye is from chicago and he has been acting weird especially since his mother died so he doesnt need the President piling on the negativity and driving the poor guy to suicide.

    Well it just came out that Chacago did not win the bid for the Olympics.

    @sereme and LovelyLisa

    Totally agree

    Do they have some type of “Save the Youth” Czar or something? This is an ongoing problem and while what happened in Chicago is tragic, things like that happen all over the country all the time. Are they going to send Eric Holder out everywhere? This seems like PR to me. They need somebody handling issues like this full time.
